6:01am
patrol agent was killed and another wounded in a shooting near the u.s.-mexico border in arizona. the department says the agents were involved in a shooting on duty near the town of naco this morning. the wounded agent is being airlift to the hospital. as soon as we get more information we'll pass it along. >> reporter: in vallejo, a house fire destroyed half a home and injured a firefighter. three-alarm fire. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran was the first reporter on the scene and spoke with the homeowner about some daring rescue attempts. she joins us now with the latest. >> reporter: i spoke with the two people in the house. it was a father and son. and thank goodness the smoke alarms went off. they had a second security system that called them and asked them if they were okay so they were well prepared for this fire. you want to look at this damage now. the call came in around 3:15 this morning as a brush fire and half the house was in flames when firefighters got
6:02am
here on scene. they say the flames were up to 30 feet high. vallejo fire department had to call in extra support from american canyon, fairfield and cordelia. because of that, they were able to tackle it quickly and able to fight it offensively meaning go inside the house and because of that, they were able to salvage some of the valuables inside. now, as it stands, firefighters were in there. you can see them they're all on the second floor. what they are doing now is looking for hotspots to make sure it is completely out. half of the houses damaged, again the two people, the father and son that were inside, are okay. one firefighter did suffer some exhaustion but was treated and released. the crews are waiting for an investigator to come on scene. they say they have no reason to believe that it is arson. i spoke to the father and son and they said the one thing that the son had to save was his college degree. he showed it to me. he got it from california state, sacramento. he said that was the one thing i needed to pull out and he
6:03am
showed it to me. it's intact. so that was a good thing. again, another thing that firefighters reinforced, the smoke alarms woke them up. the separate security system, that's something valuable, especially in cases like these so there is good news continuing. day. live in vallejo, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> good reminder to check the batteries. well, there is going to be post-season baseball on both sides of the bay, pretty exciting. >> here in the city and oakland too. the as beat the rangers last night. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington at the oakland coliseum where the as got some work to do, could even be better if they could win the next two games. >> reporter: if they win the next two games they could win the division something that people never saw coming at the beginning of the season, the as always seen as the underdog but they are on a winning streak and the excitement is not over for fans. there is a game tonight at 7:00 against the rangers but it was a big game last night when they beat the rangers 4-3 that
6:04am
clinched that spot in the play- offs. here is the 9th inning strikeout that sealed the deal. >> he got him! he struck him out! [ applause and cheers ] >> reporter: this was the as' fourth straight win and six of seven. more than 21,000 fans packed the stands last night to see the six-year dry spell end finally. in the clubhouse corks were flying and champagne flowing. >> whoo! >> reporter: looks like fun, doesn't it? and this is a big deal because nobody expected this from the as especially this year. the team is young, there's 15 rookies on the roster. and this is really supposed to be a year about rebuilding. many of those rookies actually played key roles last night like pitcher jared parker who held the rangers to three runs and six hits. the as took the lead in the 1st inning. they were tied by the fourth and then in the bottom of the 5th, coco crisp had a big hit a go-ahead double giving the as
6:05am
the lead. the rangers couldn't catch them. the as are headed to the post- season for the first time since 2006. taking one of the american league west wild card play-off spots. >> when you look at the team when i was in spring training nobody gave it a chance at least the people from the outside didn't give it a chance. what did you think? >> it was a mistake. we kept a few articles that said we are going to lose 100 games. none of us believed that. billy didn't believe it at all. >> reporter: to take the division crown, the as need to sweep the rangers. next game tonight at 7:05. very exciting here in oakland especially for those fans, who have been waiting a long time and frank, i heard you mention earlier that, yeah, only about 22,000 people came out but maybe it will be more full, more fans coming out as the excitement continues. in oakland, elissa harrington, cbs 5. >> they deserve the support after what they have done. they have the second lowest payroll in baseball. when you think of the yankees and red sox and all those big teams and they have come out of
6:06am
nowhere, lost all their pitchers, two all stars traded and their closer was traded. and now half their -- three of their five starters are hurt and they're still winning. it's remarkable. >> the underdog, always root for them. >> we have more coverage on the as at cbssf.com. we posted dennis o'donnell's champagne interviews with the team and a photo gallery of the game, as well. go check it out. go as. couple more games to go. >> are you an as fan, lawrence. >> yes. they have a fan with the best name in baseball, coco crisp. makes me hungry! we have some hot temperatures coming our way in the bay area starting out very mild this morning if you are headed out the door. probably leave the sweater behind in most spots. already 65 degrees in san francisco. 64 san jose. 62 degrees in livermore and only going up from here. in fact, by the afternoon, it is going to be hot again in spots. inland usually in the 70s and 80s. today well above the average.

6:17am
section, as well. san mateo bridge, westbound 92, usually after 8:00 hour that's when it really starts to bottleneck or starts to get heavier out of hayward towards foster city. so westbound 92, still 14 minutes between hayward and the peninsula. eastbound looking good in the east bay. no issues there. check out highway 4. it is really slow this morning. unfortunately, this is just your usual ride through antioch. one of our live drive time sensors showing speeds around 10 miles per hour. and then it gets better like usual heading towards concord. elsewhere, word from chp they cleared a stall on eastbound 24 blocking one lane of the right bore there heading towards orinda. elsewhere, if you are traveling along the peninsula, got the early-morning flight to catch by sfo, it is a free and clear ride out of san francisco. no delay at all. looks great. that's actually closer towards lagoon, so everything is cruising all the way down along the peninsula into palo alto. now, if you are heading into san francisco, once again, we
6:18am
have these street closures around howard. howard is shut down for about a block between 3rd and 4th. but it's been causing just a mess right there by moscone center oracle open world. that's what's going on. once again, everything looks good for mass transit. we haven't had any issues on mass transit, so all trains heading into downtown are right on schedule. that's a check of your "timesaver traffic." and like we say, we have traffic and weather together every 10 minutes. so here's my buddy next to me, lawrence. >> oh, sure, everybody wants to be my friend when it's sunny outside! lots of hot temperatures around the bay area, today again very similar. mostly clear skies, all the way to the coastline. we're looking good and some very mild temperatures to start out the day. in fact, by the afternoon, with mild temperatures, it is going to get hot. probably some triple digits showing up in some of the valleys and then we'll start to see some gradual cooling but for know that ridge of high pressure is in place so one more hot day for today. and then we'll begin to see some cooldown as this area of
